One year down…forever to go

In one year, I think that the Iraqi government has come farther than I expected. The elections went far more smoothly than I expected. We’ve seen more determination and willingness to compromise than I expected. We’ve seen more support for the new government among the Iraqi people than I expected. We’ve seen more resilience among Iraqi police and military forces than I expected. We’ve seen more outcries for democracy, inspired at least in part by Iraq, in other places than I expected.

Unfortunately, we’re also seeing more terrorist activity in Iraq than I expected.

It’s a long road. But it’s the right road.
